For all those vendors looking to mentor or sell trading systems, books, advice, chat rooms, etc... I would like to make a few suggestions as to how to properly market their business here on ET. - First and foremost provide an audited track record of performance. If u are running a chat room and performance is difficult to track.. then provide an audited track record of your own personal or business trading account. I am sick and tired of anyone trying to dodge this issue.. because if u cant make $ actually trading then u are worth very little.. and why should any one listen to u. - Provide a free trial to chat room, or very detailed backtested results for system looking to sell. Basically give us detailed information as to what exactly u are trying to sell. - Provide a detailed background overview as to what experience u have in the financial markets and trading. Did u work on wall street? any major trading/prop firms? What type of credibility do u have? - If you are selling a system.. the ideal scenerio would be to show the trading performance of the system with actually money being traded. Bottom line.. is that I bet if anyone followed the described recommendations as to how to sell on ET.. i bet their would be less bullshit. Now I also believe that if anyone actually had good credentials and provided all of the details above they more than likely would be trading their own account and making a killing as opposed to wasting their time with newbies.. but there are exceptions to that rule..
